1,000,000 TIMES

I look up at the star of a distant sky that
remained balanced in the same night, as I express my wish.
I want the rising sound of the lines that connect everything
to collapse until they get mixed deeply with the dawn.

I was following a trackless path,
relying on a voiceless voice,
when a nameless song resonated.

Now I’m reaching out for a real prayer.

Even if this foolish, beautiful life can be oppressing,
the higher the wall is, (1)
the more meaning it has to overcome it.
If even 1 dream on 1000000 can come true,
I’ll keep fighting again and again.
It can’t begin without you, (2)
it can’t be over if you don’t play the match.
In the story of “me” and “you”,
it’s not possible to say “who” or “what”.
You can change the ordinary world
into an unconventional world,
because you’re not alone.

Even when I was following a straight road,
without disappearing, only anxiety was imprinted on me.
Before I knew it, I closed my heart tightly
and forgot even myself, breaking the oath.

With a thirsty laughter,
I sent my running tears back,
I want to convey my distorted feelings.

Because at this rate I’ll lose it all.

I’m wrapped in a maddening, beautiful despair,
and the darker is the dark waiting ahead (3),
the more there’ll be days where I get lost.
But there’s been “light” for 10 billion years, so,
until the end, until the end I won’t throw away my wish. (4)
Truth is weak and ephemeral, falsehood is strong, can erode it.
In the ending of “you” and “me”,
“white” or “black” are not decided.
Neither the ordinary miracle nor
the fate waiting ahead can change,
because they’re not individual.

Alone, we met,
together, we united,
fulfilling the promise of that day.

Even if this foolish, beautiful life can be oppressing,
the higher the wall is,
the more meaning it has to overcome it.
If even 1 dream on 1000000 can come true,
I’ll keep fighting again and again.
It can’t begin without you,
it can’t be over if you don’t play the match.
In the story of “me” and “you”,
it’s not possible to say “who” or “what”.
You can change the ordinary world
into an unconventional world,
because you’re not alone.


(1) – wall (かべ) is written as 目標 mokuhyou (target/objective);

(2) – you (あなた) is written as 主役 shuyaku (protagonist);
(3) – ahead (さき) is written as 未来 mirai (future);
(4) – wish (のぞみ) is written as 希望 kibou (hope)
(there are a couple more that I didn’t mention because the meaning remained basically the same)
